Meet Our Director
Krystina Cierkowski, PT, DPT
Krystina Cierkowski graduated from Elizabethtown College with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biology and continued her education by earning her Masters and Doctorate degree in physical therapy at Rutgers. With her love of sports, she decided to find a job working in an orthopedic setting.
Krystina joined Twin Boro in 1998 as a PT aide and became a Staff Therapist upon completion of her education in 2002. She was promoted to Clinical Director of Twin Boro’s South Brunswick location. While working with various cervical spine dysfunctions, she found many of those patients complaining of symptoms of dizziness and decided to take continuing education courses focusing on treating vertigo and vestibular rehabilitation incorporating balance and gait training into her treatments for various neurological and orthopedic diagnoses. Krystina has taken continuing education courses including Mulligan and MacKenzie treatment approaches to cervical and lumbar spine, and functional strengthening and myofascial release.
When treating patients at our Kristina implements Twin Boro’s One2FourTM Care Model to determine the “right level of health care” for each individual. This unique approach looks at the entire episode of care for the patient or athlete. This ranges from a relatively low level of function a patient might experience post injury or surgery all the way through to the peak performance required to return to their prior or preferred level of function. She educates the patient on this model during the initial evaluation and continues to teach patients where they currently stand on the model throughout their progressive program.
When not treating, she enjoys spending time with her family participating in outdoor activities such as walks in the park and going to the beach with her two children as well as attending sporting events and concerts.
